What to Watch: What's Airing, Re-Airing & Entertaining On TV This Week

March 3rd, 2008 8:52am EST
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Monday, March 3

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8 p.m.) - It feel like only yesterday that the series premiered, but hopefully tonight's two-hour finale won't be the series finale. The show is a keeper for supporting players Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green (who would have thunk it?) alone.

My Name Is Earl (TBS, 10 p.m.) - The NBC sitcom makes its syndication debut with an encore of its karmic pilot, complete with wise words of wisdom from Carson D...
